Indiana Natural Gas Pipeline Started

BAINBRIDGE, Ind. - Construction work has started on the 166-mile segment across Indiana's midsection of a pipeline that will carry natural gas from Colorado into the Midwest.

The Rockies Express-East pipeline route crosses nine counties in central Indiana, dropping just south of Indianapolis. The pipeline is expected to be partially in service into western Indiana's Putnam County by April, with the entire section through Indiana completed by next July.

More than two years after the first public meetings were held on the project, 80-foot segments of pipe are being laid end to end near the Putnam County town of Bainbridge, about 40 miles east of Terre Haute.

Rockies Express-East is the final portion of a more than 1,600-mile, $5.6 billion pipeline stretching from Colorado to Ohio.
